I just bought a macbook pro 13" with 4gb and would like to get aperture on it.  Will aperture require too much ram for my computer?  Thanks for any support.

    It will run but the performance won't be the best. If you upgrade to 8gb at least you will be happier.

    I have been using Aperture on such a system, and it was o.k. with Snowleopard and moderately sized images. After I upgraded to Lion and started to user larger image files - 30 MB tiffs, I saw the occasional beachball spinning. You should be prepared to quit other applications that will hog the RAM (like Safari), when working with Aperture on Lion or Mt. Lion with only 4 GB. If you can, follow Frank Caggiano's recommendation and upgrade to 8GB. It will make a large difference.
